Share Echo360 content

This guide explains how to make your Echo360 recordings, whether Lecture Capture or Universal Capture (Personal), available to students.

There are several methods to share Echo360 content and your choice should depend on what the recordings relate to and where you want to share them.

You will need to have an Instructor user role for the section (Classroom) in Echo360 in order to link to the recordings. If you requested the recordings, then you should be an Instructor. If you are unsure, please email

Sharing Echo360 recordings via Moodle (for modules and ad-hoc spaces)

Echo360 Lecture Capture and Universal Capture recordings made for specific modules can be shared to Moodle in two ways:

Both methods assume that the recordings have been made for a module or an ad-hoc Moodle space with an associated Echo360 section:

  • via the Lecture Capture (Echo360) block in the respective Moodle space which will link to all recordings for the space it sits in.
  • using the External tool resource to link to an individual recording which can be placed in the relevant section (topic) of your Moodle space
The Lecture Capture (Echo360) block

If you have booked an automated Lecture Capture recording, your Moodle space will already have the Lecture Capture (Echo360) block on the right-hand side and it will link to the module’s recordings.

If you have made Universal Capture recordings for an ad-hoc Moodle space, you must have a corresponding section in Echo360 and have published the recording to it. Email to request a ‘section’ in Echo360 for your space.

If you do not have the Lecture Capture block in your space:

  1. Turn editing on in the Moodle space.
  2. Open the navigation drawer, if it is not already open, by clicking on the 'burger menu' icon in the top left-hand corner.
  3. Click Add a block in the bottom of the navigation drawer.
  4. Choose Lecture Capture (Echo360) from the list.
    NB. If you do not see it in the list, it is because the block has already been added.
  5. The block will appear on the right-hand side of your Moodle space. It cannot be dragged to the centre.
  6. Click on the logo of the Lecture Capture (Echo360) block to check that it links to your module or ad-hoc space in Echo360 and displays the correct recordings. If the correct module isn't already selected, choose the Section (module/space) from the drop-down list.
  7. Ensure Link to the Section Home is selected.
  8. Click Link Content.

Sharing ad-hoc Universal Capture (Personal) recordings from your Library

If you want to share a recording made in Universal Capture (Personal) from your private My Content library to Moodle, Sitebuilder or via any other channel, you will need to obtain the URL or embed code for your video.

  1. Login to Remember that your Echo360 password is not linked to your University password.
  2. Follow the instructions on Generating Links to Videos from the Content Home Page.
  3. Add the URL or embed code to the desired website.
